DESCRIPTION

Written by experts at the forefront of current research and clinical practice, Neonatal and Pediatric Pharmacology provides evidence-based guidelines for safe, effective, and rational drug therapy in newborns, children, and adolescents. Coverage includes specific recommendations for all major drug classes and diseases, a detailed section on drugs and the newborn, and chapters on specific treatment settings such as the pediatric intensive care unit and emergency room. Also included are chapters on adverse effects and interactions and state-of-the-art discussions on pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics, pharmacogenetics, pharmacogenomics, pharmacoproteomics, drug development, and clinical trials in infants and children. Appendices include a neonatal formulary and a pediatric formulary.

The Fourth Edition includes updated information on drug interactions and regulatory issues. New chapters cover nutrient supplements and biotransformation of medications by the human placenta.

REVIEWS

"Neonatal and Pediatric Pharmacology is a well-presented, comprehensive resource covering basic pediatric pharmacology and the therapeutic principles that underlie the use of medications in newborns and children. It will be a helpful reference for all practitioners who care for children and invaluable for those who conduct research or teach."

John L. Zeller, MD, PhD, Contributing Editor, Journal of the American Medical Association 

"This is truly the gold standard of pediatric and neonatal pharmacology. It is much more extensive than the standard pediatric drug formulary handbooks and its size means it is designed to be a reference in the office and not carried in one's lab coat pocket. However, it is a must-have reference for every pediatric ward and specialty unit since drug therapy is so essential and often misunderstood and misused."
